news deputy political director mark murray who joins us live from washington. let's break down what these results mean beginning in delaware. it was a huge tea party win, obviously. the question is, obviously, what will happen in the midterm? >> you know, richard, we just don't know right now. certainly the tea party has given republicans a jolt of enthusiasm and energy even in delaware. honestly, that's the republican party's biggest advantage heading into the midterm electrics. they're the ones who have the enthusiasm and the democrats don't. on the other hand, the tea party has given democrats an advantage in contests like delaware and kentucky and nevada where it's their candidates, the democratic candidates probably wouldn't have a chance to win or even be the favorites without the tea party candidates there. in delaware, for example, chris kuntz goes in as the fro front-runner in this contest. castle would have been the front-runner had he won. >> hey, mark, let's go to new york where we saw paladino come away with the winner there. >> that was just a shock. rick lazio has bee

governor palin for your endorsement, because she got behind us war-weary folks and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it, and she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction. >> let's look at the national map to get a sense of how wide the power is, i think, of sarah palin. look at the greens. those are the pray mary picks she picked across the country, and numerically, she had 25 wins and 11 losses and seven no contest. that adds up to almost 50 candidates. when they lose, they can be better help to you next time around because they have nothing to do but help you win the next presidential election. it's sometimes smarter. we will talk about jimmy carter. >> in the new world she can help raise money, and the shocking thing is how much the establishment party has failed to get republicans out to vote. the republican base is turning out with these insurgents now. who established the best turnout model for the republicans, george bush? they had a tremendous ability. >> they were church people too, as well. >> they are not speaking to them. whatever her succes
